Using X on a slot-loading CD iMac will do very frustrating things to the computer if the firmware is not the latest version. (The firmware issue does not affect the original, tray-load iMacs.) If the computer starts from the OS 9 CD then reformat the hard drive and install OS 9 again or use the "Restore" CD that came with the computer.

I am real confused...I have the death screen too. On an IMAc . the "et looking design. so I do what?
